I am reminded at this time of year of how hard teachers work and how empty the classroom must feel with the lights out, the chairs are up on the desks, and all the student work has been taken down from the walls. It must be so satisfying on one hand, yet such a relief on the other. A good friend who was a first year teacher in Oakland sent me this Instagram post and it made me pause and just want to #thankateacher for how much they do to care for our children.
